The majority of Israelis oppose a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in order to halt its nuclear drive, Channel 10 reported on Sunday.
A poll conducted by the Dialogue Institute under the supervision of Dr. Kamil Fuchs found that 46 percent of respondents said that Israel should not attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, 32% advocated an Israeli strike, and 22% offered no opinion. [...]
The poll also showed that Israeli support for Netanyahu has waned in the past three months. According to the poll, only 34% expressed satisfaction with the prime minister, as opposed to 58% who said that they are dissatisfied. The remainder had no opinion. A similar survey conducted in May found that 46% were satisfied with the prime minister’s performance.
Not that the signs are pointing in favour of those 46%; some are predicting a strike within twelve weeks. The decline in Bibi’s rating, meanwhile, is due to his lack of action on a replacement for the Tal law; not such a surprise there. Interesting times ahead for Israel — it will be hard for Bibi, if indeed these poll results are correct — to strike Iran without widespread support for the PM. Who knows what will happen then.
